Just testing the waters. By the way I am 29yrs old.
I dunno if anyone mentioned it already, but the Corvette is considered a luxury car so insurance rates are lower than with a sports car.


But according to that list, my GTO would have a lower insurance rate than the OPs G5.

It looks like safety features (which the Camaro has more of than the GTO) and likelyhood of bodily injury to passengers as well as the cost of repairs (the gtos was pretty high) have a big influence.

If the cars are in the same class, the Camaro should be cheaper than the GTO. And the insurance on the GTO is cheaper than my buddy's Mazda3 so if that's any indication...

im 22, good driving record, single. to make a long story short, i would end up paying around $300/month for 9 months, if i went with a $2000 deductible(their max).

From what im reading on this thread, my quote sounds a little TOO high. i will have to call them back with a car that better resembles the Camaro.

any ideas on what car i should choose to call them back with????

thanks

I'm a claims adjuster for AAA, and I can tell you that your age combined with the kind of vehicle you asked for a quote on is what led to the high price. 300.00 a month still sounds a little steep, but you may want to try to get coverage under your parents' policy. In any case, $ for $ I've got to say AAA is one of the best companies you can go with overall; we LOOK for ways to waive your deductible and my pay increases/bonuses/promotions are based 60% on customer service surveys so we HAVE to get the job done and keep you informed every step of the way. USAA is good too, problem is they'll boost your rates for every claim, whether it's your fault or not or it's just a comprehensive (like vandalism)... we won't. I'm no AAA cheerleader because i absolutley HATE my job, but I work with almost every other insurance company every day and I can honestly say we really do all we can to be fair and take care of you. With all that said, the rates generally aren't that bad... you're just young as hell trying to get a HiPo car = HIGH RISK = HIGH PREMIUMS!

And what part of Carson are you in? I live in Santa Clarita now but I stayed in Carson for a while; that city's like a second home to me... I still drive all the way down there every 2 weeks to get my hair cut!

Thanks. You have reassured, my already planted faith, in AAA. I've been with them a little over 2 yrs now and its been good.

Cool! I stay right by Carson High. been there 4 1/2 yrs.

34 years old. Pay approx. $850 a year for my Aveo. Paid approx. $1050 a year when I was 27 years old for my '02 V6 Camaro.

I'm expecting a 2010 Camaro SS to come in under $1400 a year.

Full coverage on an 03 Z06 was going to run me $800 every 6 months...I'm 23 with a clean driving record. My 04 tahoe runs me $600 every 6 months.

My Insurance is Rediculous!!

Yo maybe you guys can help me out here and see if i'm paying too much for insurance cause it seems most of you guys have it really easy. Ok, so I'm 19 and i'm driving an 04 Nissan Sentra (V4 1.8L) and I'm paying $1900 something (i know it's a little more) for every 6 months. I should have only one accident on my record right now, and I have two speeding tickets. I'm insured with Allstate right now and I'm insured under my parents. Hell there's no way i could do this on my own. Monthly it comes around to about $300 and just thinking that's a bit too much. So can you guys please help me out by giving me your opinion on this cause I really think it's too much and I don't want to pay a shit load when i get my Camaro.

-Thanks

Someone mentioned earlier in this thread that Corvette was a luxury car therefore rates are lower. I have a hard time believing that as possible. Camaro Scotty can correct me if i'm wrong. I believe the VIN on all cars has one letter in it that says what type the vehicle is, (performance, utility, kiddy wagon etc.) Insurance companies rate vehicles accordingly.

Also being a all new vehicle, rates will most likely fluctuate a bit for the first year or two until they can establish average claim costs, crash testing and theft rate.

As for discounts for multiple policies, that can be big savings. A few years ago I had a '05 Duramax dually, 30 foot travel trailer and paid around $130/mo. I ask my agent about renters insurance. What a surprise, by adding renters my rate dropped to $100/mo and the renters was esentially free. Your agent should help you find ways to save. If they can write extra policies for you and you save, then you save and the also profit by writing an addidional policy. If your agent won't help, don't be afraid to shop around. Like car dealers, insurance agents will try to find you a deal so they can write your policy.

When I was 19 I had a 1991 Camaro RS (V6). My insurance was over $3000 a year. And I had no tickets or accidents.

At 20 I purchased a new 1995 Cavalier Coupe. It was still over $2500 IIRC.

Until you turn 25 you're pretty much f***ed...

Getting older has it's benefits... At 28 I was paying 1/3 of the insurance price that I was paying at 18. If not less. (2 year old 1991 Camaro RS V6- $3400 a year vs. brand new 2002 Camaro Coupe V6- $1100.)

Thanks for helping me out. It's seriously *%$*ed up that insurance companies can charge us that much. And it sucks even more cause we're guys!!! Seriously my sisters get more tickets than me combined and they still don't have to pay as much as me. Seriously its like insurance companies were made by women that wanted to get back at men. There has got to be a better way to lower insurance rates. Really why the hell should I wait till i'm 25 to pay low insurance?

Yeah. I was still paying over 2 grand when i was 30. I went with Progressive when i was 25. They said after two years they'd move me to a higher bracket. Never did. They are liars. They actually had the guts , when i quit them, to ask me to recommend them to people. I told them what i thought. I was about 30 years old, paying $223 a month. And to top it off i was only putting about 5-7 thousand miles a year on my car. Insurance companies=Evil.

Dude I am in the military and I had Geico while driving a 2007 Nissan 350Z and was paying $536.00 every 6 mo. Plus I am 29 yrs old. That is 91.00 every month full coverage. I donít know who you spoke to at Geico. But for them to charge double the USAA price, your driving record might have some issues.

my driving record is near perfect (1 speeding ticket, which was after I was already insured w/ them)

i had Geico back in California and it was the cheapest i could find, but for some reason their avg prices are lot more expensive out here (florida)
